We designed two distinct visualizations to exhibit the data collected. The first one introduces the overall concept of the project to the audience. A "crowd detector" scans across the global map, revealing the names of architects as it scans over the geographic area where each architect contributes or is photographed the most in relation to the rest of his or her work. The size and color of each architect's name corresponds to the frequency with which his or her projects are photographed.
The second visualization focuses on displaying the data for each individual architect. A line scans across the screen and generates a particular heat map for the selected architect while presenting the Flickr photographs to you.
The analysis and mapping of this data reveals the global points of architectural interests and how they contribute to the level of tourist activity. It also exposes how architectural landmarks and the role of star-chitects contribute to shaping urban activity and aesthetics.
